jdmorehouseUp one side, down the other  Sucess!

I started up Tyndall on Sunday, the 29th at six p.m. from Shepherds Pass and made it to just below the summit ridge by eight o'clock, and turned back, as I'd be descending in the dark if I continued. So the next day three of us went up the right hand side of the rib, which put us on the summit ridge with a few obstacles to by pass, then came down the other side of the rib (would be the right side looking at it from below), finally traversing over slabs to the ascent side about mid-way down. There was still a large patch of snow above 13000', but the view of the Sierra from the summit showed how really dry the area is already. Worst drought in hundreds of years, I've read.

The day after climbing Williamson, packed up from campsite at Williamson Bowl, left w/ packs at 8am. Dropped packs below the rib, hiked up the rib, then left at the top, to the summit. Camp at bowl-Tyndall summit-Shephard Pass-Trailhead in 10 hours. W/ Andy.

Climbed up the north rib again with "Bob Langley". Had to time the climb between storms. Then hiked back to the trail head and stuffed our faces full of nasty pizza.

After moving camp from Wright Lakes basin to Shepherd Pass we headed up the North Rib for an afternoon climb on a clear day. Made the classic mistake of heading to the wrong notch, but did enjoy the airy view down the south side from the top! Traversed across the slabs to the correct notch and quickly gained the summit. Perfect climbing weather, great views, and I'll be back for Williamson someday...

Climbed en route to Williamson. Loved it! North rib is FUN! I felt that the rib proper is class 2, with plenty of options on either side to add spice. The slabs are solid, fun and clean, found it both faster and more exciting to ascend via slabs. Exit to ridge was intuitive and short trek to summit was enjoyable. Car to summit in just under 6, then to Williamson summit, just under 11. Car-to-Tyndall-to-Williamson-to-car 18 hours. SP Josh you are a f@&$n animal!

Fun mid-morning ascent up the North Rib--classic sierra granite. Great to be on top for my 32nd birthday and look across the bowl to Mt Williamson--our goal for the next day.

Shepard's pass is a pretty brutal day-hike. I ascended the Northwest Ridge which is long and unexciting. The more direct route from the 2nd lake (east of the ridge) is a much better way to go.

Didn't have a good info on how to exit from the Rib to the summit ridge, but hundreds of footsteps at the very top of the Rib (at its left side as you go up) guided me nicely. The register is completely full; whoever goes there next, please bring another notebook! Took me 5 and a half hours (including a long stay at the top) for the entire trip, from a base camp at Shepherd Pass. Did Williamson the next day.

Nice side trip on my way to the Williamson Bowl. Fantastic views, perfect day.

The slabs to the right of the rib proper were free of snow and much nicer than the rib itself. Class 2-3 ish in approach shoes.
